Ashley Monroe is “Paying Attention” 

Fans are certainly happy to hear the tunes, particularly as teaser to the upcoming LP Sparrow, due out on April 20th via Warner Music Nashville. It is expected to be a stellar collaboration between Monroe and producer Dave Cobb. The album is set to present the beauty that can be found through hardships as well, with writer collaborations including Ryan Beaver, Brendan Benson, Kassi Ashton, Anderson East and Pistol Annies’ Angaleena Presley. The album follows up after her 2015 Grammy-nominated The Blade. The first song off the album is said to be “Orphan” and will include “Wild Love” among others, comprising the twelve tracks.

New Music by Jack White 

Boarding House Reach is a follow up to 2014’s Lazaretto and will be out via Third Man and Columbia. And while we are at it, we can enjoy some Jack White during this year’s Governor Ball Music Festival this summer, featured alongside Eminem, Travis Scott and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. We rather like seeing his solo work, despite loving his White Stripes music as well. The fact that he can indeed create in multiple genres makes him one hell of a talented musician. Hopefully, there is more we can look forward to this year as well?

New Album By Justin Timberlake is Very Much Down to Earth

Loyal fans who have known him from his NSYNC days have also grown up and generally have families of their own. We can certainly relate, especially when it comes to soul-searching in cornfields and camping in the mountains with loved ones. Since his last studio album was back in 2013, it has also given us plenty of time to miss him, despite his constant musical appearances – Trolls soundtrack and all. As for the dropped single? “Filthy” is pretty far from what the name implies. Grown up Timberlake is, with futuristic robotic inventions shown off on set to some slick dance moves. We are pretty sure Steve Jobs was an inspiration here. Dancing robot avatars in 2028? Check!

Bjork’s “Blissing Me”

With Bjork’s ninth studio album Utopia  having been released on November 24th and now available on the typical music outlets, “Blissing Me” brings beauty to the screen with a minimalistic video that looks like a fairy from a dream singing about a rather utopian modern love story built upon a musical base. The words are poetic, beautiful and actually make you look them up instead of blindly repeating a refrain on loop. This is one of Bjork’s strengths, something we expect to see a lot of in this latest, highly anticipated  album.

Evanescence LP and Fall Tour

“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music underneath the huge drums and guitars,” Lee said in a statement. “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation.” The Synthesis Live tour is set to kick off on October 14 from Las Vegas and will be taking the group around the US and Canada. Tickets are already on sale and is accompanied by a free download of the album. It is their first time touring with an orchestra, so there is so much to be looking forward to.

New Pink Single

Beautiful Trauma is the upcoming Pink LP that she states she is “certifiably, insanely proud of” in a recent interview. It is due out on October 13 of this year and is her comeback album after five years of being relatively quiet. “What About Us” is the single released which rather intriguingly builds up from a ballad into quite the emotional dance track, complete with some fantastic pounding of drums.
